Firstly I am a lover of Nature and everything we get from her, a traveler and explorer by nature and a firm believer in gratitude.
I am also a registered Nutritional therapist, with an Honors degree in Personalised nutrition and a few others relating to the health field. I am a member of BANT as well as IFM (British association of applied nutrition and nutritional therapy) and adhere to their strict code of practice and requirements for professional development.
I have always been intrigued by finding ways to assist healing and growth through non-invasive and natural means. In my practice I adress a variety of health issues, but my passion lies in mental health. With lifelong interaction and experience with mental health issues, I set out to find a way to support and attain mental well-being without the excessive use of drugs that simply dull the senses. After completing my degree in Psychology I started counselling in support groups for severe depression and anxiety. It was here I really came to appreciate the role nutrition plays in health. As I began my journey as a nutritional therapist, I came to appreciate and understand the intricate and simply amazing interplay between nutrients and the human body. With a focus on children`s health I completed my dissertation on epigenetic effects on childhood neuro developmental disorders.
Together we can prevent and overcome many adversities, leading to a life filled with joy!
